The San Diego Sun is downtown San Diego’s lively source for news, issues and insights that affect the urban core–written by a veteran journalist and longtime city resident.
At last count, more than 37,000 people were living in the 92101 ZIP Code. More than 100,000 folks work in the San Diego urban core. Millions of visitors come for vacations or conventions.
San Diego Sun coverage will include:
- New restaurants and bars.
- Upcoming shows and events, in venues like the Rady Shell at Jacobs Park.
- Homelessness issues. The Sun will do pieces about reality on the street, outreach by service providers and political decisions that affect the issue.
- City Hall. Any and all civic issue.
- Tourist attractions.
- Petco Park.
- And anything that touches our lives in the city.
As a downtown resident, I walk and bike city streets nearly every day.
My resume includes a decade-long stint as executive editor of San Diego Magazine. I also served as the top editor at San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles and alt-weekly San Diego CityBeat.
My byline has appeared in the two dozen national publications and websites, including Men’s Health, Men’s Journal, Maxim, Glamour, huffpost.com and popsugar.com.
Locally, I’ve written for The San Diego Union-Tribune, San Diego Business Journal, Ranch & Coast, Pacific San Diego and sandiego.com.
Somewhat randomly: I taught a magazine class at Point Loma Nazarene University. Served as chief content officer for Ballotpedia.org. Have a travel blog called Junkets & Jaunts. Was a national runner-up in a Ron Burgundy look-alike contest.
Please keep an eye on The Sun. Consider subscribing to the free newsletter. My stories will be unvarnished, occasionally whimsical and always grounded in journalistic standards.
